Forum: opensource_audio Subject: Audio marked down as a book

This site is a great idea, but the upload feature is AWFUL. It never uploads to anything like what you specify:

please can someone with the ability to reach beyond the Matrix code change this media type to 'community audio' rather than a book. Is this because it assumes the .FLA files are some sort of book rather than FLAC audio?

Also, is there a way I can stop this error happening in the future?

it's been moved and is deriving now. our system often detects the txt file first and assigns the mediatype and collection based on that. we aware of the issues and hope to fix the issue in the future. in the meantime the only way that will work for sure is to only upload audio files and then add the txt and image files to the item once it is created. then re-derive to populate the item with any metadata that you put in the txt file.
